ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

With a lot of people celebrating for the Super Bowl on Sunday night, the Georgia State Patrol wants you to stay safe on the roads.

Troopers say there's nothing wrong with celebrating, but the problem is getting behind the wheel after drinking.

Georgia State Patrol Trooper Robert Corbin said Sunday there are a lot of troopers on the roads in the Albany area right now.

He said it's easy to avoid driving under the influence.

"The best thing people can do is to have them a sober, designated driver," said Trooper Corbin. "The cost of getting a DUI now is extremely high. Make a phone call. Everyone has got a friend."

You can use the Drive Sober Georgia app to find a safe ride home in the Albany area.
